Today I am answering some of the questions that have come my way from followers… Hmmm, that sounds like I’m a cult leader. Try again: Today I’ll be answering questions from readers, like you! Since interviews are boring, I’ll include a recipe or a nice quote at the end (I’m resorting to bribery…).
Interview with a Blogger (Me!)
Why do you have a blog or What made you start a blog?
As long as I can remember, I have loved writing. While it came in handy to in college, it was only recently that I began writing seriously, for pleasure. It is strongly recommended that one write every day – something to which I just couldn’t commit. Until now. The blog gets me writing every morning, Monday thru Friday. Amazingly, it has resulted in my writing even more and I have several projects going now.
Also, individuals have always sought me out for ideas or support. This has given me the confidence to offer such to a wider audience. It’s trendy to be a Life Coach and this is my way of doing so without taking classes or being certified.
How do you know what to write about?
Apparently, there is a lot going on inside my head. When I started out, I worried that I would run out of material. I guess I have a lot to say! Some mornings, I have a plan or an outline of what I’m going to write. However, it doesn’t always go as planned and I often end up writing something completely arbitrary. Also, some of you have offered suggestions that I really liked and I have used them as blog topics!
How long does it take you to write a blog?
If it’s information that I need to read up on first, it takes longer. If I am just writing from the heart, it’s faster – usually about 30-45 minutes. Ironically, those are my most popular blogs and the ones that garner the most comments. I’ve spent hours researching and writing informative pieces that attracted two readers. Go figure.
What is your blog about?
The specific subject matter varies. The common theme would be how to be the best version of yourself or how to live your best life. I’ve touched on nutrition & natural remedies, good food, music, playtime, mental health issues, happiness, forgiveness, managing your time, organizing, walking away from toxic people and an array of other things. Occasionally, I throw out an informative piece about a current event or holiday.
How do you know that if anyone reads it?
Well, if I see you in the grocery store and you refuse to make eye contact…. Just kidding! I don’t know who reads the blog, unless you leave a comment. I do receive a notification when you sign up to follow me (still sounds creepy). My website provides stats for each individual blog so that I know how many people visited (and hopefully read it).
Why can’t I leave a comment?
I have no clue. Most people can but a few people have told me that they are unable to do so. I suspect it’s some kind of conflict between your computer/device and WordPress. It is frustrating because your feedback is very important to me. Please feel free to eMail me, contact me thru Facebook, send a smoke signal or hire a carrier pigeon if there is something you want to say!!
Now, for the good stuff!
This would be a great place to use Turmeric! Just add it to the curry powder.
